  11. Fred used to always bring a bit of joy every time I saw him back when he worked at the court house. I used to enter the back way when I was on the PD and working with the Judge later, and Fred was always there with a joke or just a nice greeting. He was a wonderful part life in New Rockford back in those days, and the town will be just a bit poorer for his loss. Rest in peace old friend.
